The built-in box in the room has a code lock, which is clean and tidy. The girl's bathroom also has a combination lock, and the hot water temperature is sensitive. Conveniently located near the MRT, there is a night market nearby. 房間內置物箱有密碼鎖,乾淨整潔。女生盥洗室也有密碼鎖才可進入,熱水溫度感應靈敏。交通方便離捷運近,附近有夜市。

It was a great experience here with my friends. I won't say this is the best hotel or high end place to live in ks but with the price of it, I believe you can't find another hostel for the same quality!!!

While the building from outside looks really old, it’s refreshing to know that inside the hostel, it is clean and really spacious. The people were all very patient and helpful all throughout my stay and assisted me with every question I had with how to get to somewhere and where to actually go. The mattress was very comfy (1 pillow, 1 sheet and blanket and comforter). Separate t&b, separate mam & woman units. With spacious washing area (pay for washer & dryer). Big ref, cable tv. 24 hr access card. Really huge common area and separate kitchen area. Free coffee, toast, water, noodles. Please remove your shoes right before entry and take one of the washed slippers as you go in.

Me and my friends stayed in a 6 person dormitory type and I can say that it is highly recommended for a group who wants to save money but do not want to compromise comfort.The room is clean and cozy.The aircon is working properly.The linens were clean.They also have a laundry area and a dining area.What I love the most is their shower room which is very safe for a women who loves to travel solo becuase they have a special lock for it and is very clean.Another thing why would I recommend this hostel is that it’s very near to the station whick allow you to access their public transport and travel easily around the area and the surroundings are very great.There is a near park in this hostel if u want to jog in the morning.And the most importing is that the receptionist was very kind and accomodating.Our overall stay was great and would highly recommend this to my family and friends.
